ACRV Robotics Workshop Series 2015

Robotic Vision Workshop Series for Industry















Robots are changing the way we live and work. The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) brings together Australia’s top researchers in computer vision and robotics to lead the world in robotic vision research. Robotic vision is the key enabling technology that will allow robotics to transform labour-intensive industries, disrupt stagnant markets, and ensure robots become a ubiquitous feature of the modern world.


We are partnering with Australia’s major research groups covering robotics, automation, materials, systems, vision and control to deliver a Robotics Workshop Series specifically for industry to address how advances in these fields will impact in the future.  Our partners include, the Centre for Intelligent Systems Research (Deakin University), the  University fo Wollongong and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science, and the University fo Sydney’s Australian Centre for Field Robotics. The seminars will explore the implications for industries, methods you can use to deploy robotics to take advantage of and respond to the sector opportunities with specific reference to examples of research collaboration with business, particularly in the following key sectors:


Our vision is to develop and fast track farm robotic technology that will reinvigorate productivity through increased production and reduced costs

Robots with vision have strong potential to transform the building and construction industry, which has significant economic importance to Australia

Robotic vision systems that can see what needs to be seen, analyse those images and provide condition reports on the health of these assets

Developing advanced robots that can use their sense of vision as smart co-workers, watching what human workers do and anticipating what comes next

We are seeking to develop a robotic tool to take care of manipulation tasks while the surgeon takes care of the decision-making


The ACRV Robotics Workshop Series will discuss and demonstrate  developments in robotics and it is designed for industry leaders investigating introducing robotics into their businesses, and to create connections with Australia’s leading researchers in the many fields that feed in to robotics.



We invite you to join researchers from ACRV and our partner organisations to learn more about robotics and how industry sectors are gaining competitive advantage through robotics in a rapidly changing market.


This workshop is free, however registration is required. Complimentary lunch is provided. Please choose workshop location by clicking on the following buttons and register to attend.


We look forward to your participation at the ACRV Robotics Workshop Series 2015.
